Early life and career
At age 11, he began studying Kyokushin kaikan, a form of stand up, full contact karate. He began his training at martial arts star Sonny Chiba's Japan Action Club. With him knowing how to perform martial arts, this led to being in contact with Michelle Yeoh. He starred in Danny Boyle's Sunshine later on with Yeoh. He is also good friends with Jackie Chan, although the only movie he starred in with Chan was Rush Hour 3, where he played Kenji, Insp. Lee's 'brother', Speed Racer, where he played Mr. Musha, owner of Musha Motors.
